6 - Unseen Skins S1: Careers Advice II
Initially, the careers adviser is working on her own application form. She calls Sid for help, but he isn’t there. Anwar enters the careers office in a ninja costume. The careers adviser shrugs her shoulder and Anwar asks is it because “a brown man can’t be a ninja?” He then performs a routine with nunchucks. The careers adviser is impressed; Anwar asks which gang he can be a part of. The careers adviser tells him that she can’t help. Tony’s questionnaire says that he can be anything that he wants to be. The careers adviser asks what he wants to be, to which he replies “Elvis”. The careers adviser says that she “just wanted to make a difference”. Tony asks her if she is “more of a Beatles fan”, leaving by calling her a “hippie”. Michelle then enters, at which point the careers adviser is under the desk. Michelle’s questionnaire says that she is very good at languages. They then start talking in French. The careers adviser shows prospectuses and Michelle tells her that she wants to go to a university that is far, far away, to which the careers adviser suggests The University of Strathclyde (which in fact does not have a specific Languages course). It instead runs individual language courses.
